  • FredMcKenna1 Fred McKenna Understanding CIPA is important but it does not solve the entire problem. It is important to have a filter to ensure that a typo doesn't bring the student to a malware or offensive site. The student and/or teacher can have the best intentions, understand proper Internet use, etc and still project an inappropriate sit onto a white board in the classroom.

    Many IT people over block sites, not because of CIPA, but because the filter they are using is not designed for a learning environment. For example, the filter can not block offensive comments, ads and suggested videos on YouTube so they block the entire site.

    I am attaching a url to a white paper that addresses this issue. If the filter is designed by a company that understands education many issues that educators have with filtering, go away.
